AmaWaterways has been an industry leader in river cruising for years. They have single handedly made it easier for travelers to “country hop” through Europe without having to pack up and move every few days. River cruising, by design, provides an opportunity to visit multiple cities in a single itinerary without ending up feeling like you need a vacation from your vacation. Travelers simply check into their floating boutique hotel, unpack once, and immediately become immersed in the local culture and history.
Beginning in May 2019, AmaWaterways will once again take this industry niche a step further. With the debut of AmaMagna, AmaWaterways will offer an experience along the Danube like never before. AmaMagna measures in at nearly twice the standard width of a river cruise vessel, and this space was put to exceptional use by expanding stateroom size (most measure 355 square feet on AmaMagna), adding additional furnishings to private bathrooms, and incorporating outside balconies for most staterooms. AmaMagna gives passengers more room to relax or be active.
The Sun Deck Pool and two spas are perfect for mastering the art of doing nothing, while the Health & Wellness Studio with retractable windows, jogging track, and group fitness classes will keep even the most active passengers engaged and in shape.
After working up an appetite onboard, AmaWaterways’ membership in the international culinary society La Chaine des Rotisseurs means passengers will dine on local cuisine, expertly and lovingly crafted in the ship’s main dining room, Chef’s Table restaurant, or al fresco dining area and wine bar.
Once guests have slept off dinner, they will awake in a new city to explore. The city centers of Bratislava, Budapest, Prague, and Vienna are just a few of the picturesque destinations accessible by AmaMagna. These cities afford visitors the opportunity to experience the grandeur of Vienna’s Schonbrunn Palace, hike to a castle in Slovakia’s capital or bike along scenic rivers with AmaMagna’s complimentary bicycle rentals. Booking excursions is simple and stress-free, although deciding which ones to book could get complicated with so many indulgent and fascinating choices.
AmaMagna will also sail during festive season to the Christmas Markets of Europe. Year in and year out, these sailings are in high demand. Each new city offers different markets to explore and local artisans who are happy to showcase their handmade, one-of-kind gifts. A Christmas Market cruise along the Danube is an itinerary filled with magic, romance, joy, and enough memories to last a lifetime – or until the next time.
Let AmaWaterways and FROSCH take you on a luxurious, authentic, and invigorating river cruise journey through Europe!
